Unscripted and CPS sketch time

Yeah, another week and more sketches to share with you.  Saturday means a new Unscripted sketch, Sunday means a new Card Positioning Systems sketch. 
The first card I will share in this post is the card that I created with the newest Unscripted sketch.  I just picked up a mini pad of patterned papers by K&Co at Michaels and so I pulled that out for this card. 
I actually love fussy cutting so I cut out the flowers and leaves from one of the papers.  I even cut out some additonal pieces of the flower so that I could layer the flower.  The oval is cut using a Spellbinder Nestabilities and then sanded. 
And this card uses the newest CPS sketch and these really cute stamps.  We got to play with an adorable Unity set of stamps and I paired them with brand NEW Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker papers from the Max and Mollie collection. 
The scallops are stamped with brown ink and they are part of the set as is this really cute little chick. I added a glitter, heart to the middle of her tummy. 

Plus, I want to share this layout.  I was able to play along with a Becky Fleck PageMaps sketch for February and I used another brand NEW Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker collection, It's You Day.  The row of cupcakes are on the bottom edge of one of the patterned papers. 
The piece with the names of the months of the year are on the die cut sheet. I thought it made a fun little accent and then I highlighted the month of his birthday. 
The candles are also part of the die cut sheet, I just used two of them since this is his 2nd birthday.  I accented the flames on the candles with Glitter 3-D Fashion paint by Tulip
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
